Caravan dreams...

Okay, so we have no real traveling plans this summer... but a girl can dream. Right now I am dreaming of a trip with a caravan, specifically the one above or any of the Airstreams below. It must have pretty curtains and granny square blankets. Pretty china and table linens. I must wear a pretty flowing white dress or look hip and cool just like the girl above. Hmmm... somehow not quite sounding like life with an 11 and 15 year old... But since this is my dream right now I will pretend what I want. And I am so there right now. The pic above started all this crazy camper nonsense... from Red magazine (May issue).

The photographs below are from Vintage Vacations. Sigh... Located on the Isle of Wight (UK) and started by Helen Carey, a London stylist and her husband, it is vintage caravan heaven. Yes, I see myself there. Book, perhaps some knitting or crochet, small daytrips and come home to these little cool retro homes.

Not a caravan, but inspirational nonetheless. (The white dress, crochet blanket, well, you get it) The picture is by Miep Jukkema.
